Found this packed little bistro when wandering the streets on Montmartre looking for dinner. Clearly a firm favourite with locals and tourists alike as we managed to grab the only table not booked for that night's service! The food is classic French served in an elegant way and with no pretension and of course the wine selection was incredible. The... More

As the title says, stumbled across this by chance, luckily nabbing the last spot to dine at the bar. Very enjoyable meal. Rustic style food with good flavours and quality ingredients (the lamb was exceptional). Very agreeable service. Good wine selection. A great warm and convivial atmosphere. A little on the pricey side (90 euros for 2 sharing a starter... More

Made the reservation thinking it was a different restaurant and was totally and pleasantly surprised. The chestnut soup and the ratatouille were superb. The quail in honey and lavender sauce was excellent and the service was friendly and fast. A really good dinner experience. Shame we had to run and missed dessert

Was there based on the good reviews and was not disappointed. Delicious traditional meals and friendly staff. Loved the open kitchen to see the cooks working. Weekdays not too crowded but reservation for a friday/saturday dinner clearly advised as it is really a small restaurant.

For an American, this was the "French Cafe" we expect to find. Cozy, small tables, friendly staff (thanks Roberta from Italy!) and the selections, and wine, were good. I had "pig cheeks" which were fall-apart tender and delicious. After 3 weeks to do this review, we can't remember what my wife had. Therefore it was not particularly memorable! The food... More

Went here on a Saturday night after being directed here by their neighbours which were fully booked. Luckily they had 1 table for us. I have to say it's been a long time since I've had this friendly and polite service. Also the English of our waitress was perfect! We had a main dish and shared a dessert, all was... More

“A nice (really nice) little place in Montmartre...” 5 of 5 bubbles Pending review My wife, over the years, always wanted to eat here. And I sort of put my feet against the wall and pushed back. I finally gave up. And, wow, was I wrong and was her intuition right on. This is an unassuming place but our meal... More

To be fair, the food was great, however the service did not match the food taste at all. We got our table about 10 min late, and after ordering the food was ready 35min later. The waiter was ok, but the waitress was not friendly. Overall the service need to be improved.

The staff very very friendly and it created a great atmosphere. The food was traditional and tasty. I am allergic to egg, wine and dairy and they were took this into consideration and made me a wonderful meal. I would recommend booking ahead as it is a small restaurant.

This was our second visit to this restaurant and once again we left having had a fabulous evening. Whilst our first visit had been on spec, this time I had phoned to book for a Saturday evening and were very glad we had as with only about 30 covers, by 8pm gests were being turned away. We started with salmon... More

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
